We visit the Ålesund Food and Beer Festival

 On Saturday, our second day at Pamela and Runar’s house, we went for a small walk around the village in the morning, this area of Norway is very nice and full of mountains.

In the afternoon we went to the main city, Ålesund to be part of the Food and Beer Festival, here you can see us waiting for the boat to go to the city.
Here we are sitting in some marmalade jars, this marmalade is made with local ingredients and it is orange with chili flavor.
 They also talked to us about the amount of food we waste every year, and about how we can help for this food not to be wasted. In this picture you can see it says that around 11.3 kg of fruit and vegetables get thrown away a year by one person only.

In between the Food and the Beer festival there was a small break and we decided to go to a park to rest. Here we are in a bright yellow bench we found, it was very nice
 At the Beer festival we talked with many different brewers and learnt about their creative process, and about the locally brewed beer industry in Norway.

Runar and Pamela tried some of the beer and… we are not going to lie, we tried some of the beer too heheheh It was very interesting to taste the different flavors and learn about the ingredients and the textures.
